www.EFTPS.gov with online payment and worksheet formSoftware
The website www.eftps.gov is a website designed by the United States
Department of Treasury to allow all taxpayers, businesses and
individuals alike, to pay their federal tax debts. This allows for quick
and easy payment of debts electronically.
The first step in using the EFTPS.gov system is to enroll in the system. The taxpayer identification number or social security number, bank routing and account numbers and the name and address as they appear on the tax return form are necessary. Then, a password is received and the bill payment can begin.
This system can be used for all federal tax payments that are due, including payroll withholding taxes. Many agencies now use this system to pay their federal tax payments due to the ease of use. Using this system not only allows for payment of federal tax debt, it also allows the printing of certain forms as well as a payment history report.
Using EFTPS is very convenient. The service is available 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. It is easy to use, providing step by step instruction for each payment. A preview of the payment is available prior to submitting, helping to eliminate errors with payment amount, payment type and so on. It is also very secure. The information is protected by the highest levels of security available.
Payments are initiated by the tax payer. At this time, there is no automated system set up to handle automatic withdrawals from the tax payer's account for tax payments. This is an added security feature that is not an intended feature, but the tax payer must initiate and approve all payments.
